Are Bed Rails Safe for Toddlers?

I’ve seen a lot of people post recently saying that baby bed rails are unsafe and there’s no need to buy them, so I thought I had something to say.
It is definitely necessary to buy a bed fence. I bought my bed fence after my baby fell off the bed. There are also many reports on the safety issues of bed rails. Mothers may also worry that their baby will get stuck in the gap and suffocate, or their hands and feet will be stuck. In fact, you can avoid it by just paying attention to a few points.

I Really Regret Not Buying Bed Rails Sooner

At first, I thought that the bed fence was not necessary. When the baby wakes up, I can put him on the floor to play. If he falls down occasionally, he won’t fall too hard. If I put a pillow next to the bed, the baby won’t be able to climb over it. By the time he can climb over, he will probably be able to get out of bed on his own. Until a few days ago when I was sleeping, the baby turned over and fell off the bed. The pillow was kicked off at some point, and then he started crying loudly, which scared me. I really regret not buying a bed rail sooner.

Baby Bed Rails Are Necessary to Buy

First, it is necessary to buy a bed fence. It is very useful for babies from 2 months old to 5 years old.
The baby may turn over unconsciously when he or she falls asleep or just wakes up. A baby as young as one month old will cry loudly to attract attention when he wakes up and finds no one. When a baby is older, he will play by himself first when he wakes up. If you take care of the baby alone, you are doing housework and resting when the baby is asleep, so it is impossible to keep an eye on the baby all the time. You may be doing housework when your baby first wakes up, and the baby is very easy to fall out of bed at this time. By the time you hear the cry, it's too late.

Don't Be Cheap When Choosing A Baby Bed Fence

Second, When choosing a bed fence, be sure not to be cheap. For these safe things, you must buy sturdy ones with safety certificates and safety tests. Is it fixed well?

These need to be looked at carefully.

How to Choose Toddler Bed Rails?

Third, The bottom rail of the bed rail should be adjustable and adjusted to be as flush as possible with the bed surface to prevent the baby from falling into the gap.
The purchased bed rails for the baby must be installed correctly and the bottom screws must be tightened to make it more stable. Buying 3 to 4 sides will be more stable. If your baby can't crawl yet, one side should be fine. The gap between the two bed rails should be covered to prevent the baby's hands and feet from getting stuck. You can block the gap between the bed rail and the headboard with pillows first. After the baby can crawl and stand, try to buy four sides.
The higher the bed rail, the longer it will last. After your baby can escape from jail, you need to replace or reduce the use of bed rails.

Personal opinion: When mothers choose baby products, remember that as long as they are related to safety, they must not be cheap. After all, you get what you pay for, and it is the last word that things are safe and sturdy. The few dollars you save by force are sometimes just a matter of adults buying a few less clothes in life. Be careful with children's things!
